  • Worthy had the chance to work with the linebacker coach at Mississippi State during his time at the MSU camp. He came away impressed.

    "I liked my position coach, Geoff Collins, and I also liked that I had a lot of opportunities to go one-on-one with him," said Worthy.

    Coach Collins was just as impressed with Worthy.

    "He said he liked how competitive I am and that I could go back and forth between DB and linebacker," said Worthy. "He also liked my footwork and my cuts."

    Worthy has several more camps to attend before shutting it down for awhile.

    "I just left the LSU camp, I was at the Mississippi State camp today, I go to Southern Miss Saturday and Arkansas State Sunday," said the youngster.

    Worthy is receiving recruiting interest from several schools.

    "LSU, Alabama, South Alabama, Purdue, Missouri, Memphis, Arkansas State, Mississippi State, Clemson and Ole Miss are recruiting me," said Worthy. "I have offers from Purdue, Arkansas State, South Alabama and Tennessee Tech. And my coach told me yesterday that Memphis has now offered."

    He's currently being recruited as a DB but could wind up being a linebacker on the next level.

    "Most of the schools in the SEC are looking at me as a safety but if I grow into a linebacker that's what they'll take me as," said Worthy.
